Summary:

Edgar Roy-an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility-is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction.

Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy's attorney, Sean's old friend and mentor Ted Bergin, to help work the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins-en route to their first meeting with Bergin, Sean and Michelle find him murdered. It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered: Is Roy a killer? Who murdered Bergin? With help from some surprising allies, they continue to pursue the case. But the more they dig into Roy's past, the more they encounter obstacles, half-truths, dead-ends, false friends, and escalating threats from every direction.

Their persistence puts them on a collision course with the highest levels of the government and the darkest corners of power. In a terrifying confrontation that will push Sean and Michelle to their limits, the duo may be permanently parted.

    The Sixth Man This is the first book that I have listened to from David Baldacci, and I was not disappointed. I found that the book moves along very nicely. It was good character development, and plenty of action, and even some unexpected twists at the end.

    I was intrigued during the whole book. I absolutely love having these two narrators. They work well together.

    This fast paced mystery, action, suspense, taking sides and grasping your attention until the very end, with a twist. You really don't know WHO DONIT. This read is not easy to analyze and the conclusion you reach before the end - will not be true.

    I am a fan of all Baldacci books. King and Maxwell are two of my favorite characters. This book did not disappoint.

    Returned it after the first disc; stilted and forced. Surprisingly poor writing.

    If you are a Baldacci fan - this is a good one! Maxwell and his side kick Michelle do not disappoint!
